Chestnut-backed Chickadee

The most exciting news this Spring in my house is the new friends we have in our backyard-- a whole family of Chestnut-backed chickadees. We happend to capture the moment when 2 baby birds were waiting for their mommy to come back with yummy foods. The bird house was built a year ago among the bamboos but this is the first time that the bird house got utilized! We are looking forward when those baby birds are learning to fly.

I promised to show the progress of my workshop after it was first created in February. Now here it is with all kinds of yummy treasures spreading out all over the table and shelfs, and drawers of drawers of beads and supplies.
Across from my table I can see a big oak tree from the window. That is the best part of this workshop.

Berkeley Earth Day

I am so slow blogging about my daily life. Back in late April, I did my first outdoor craft fair this year in Berkeley. Sort of a kick off to a series fairs that I am going to do in 2009. The photos show my new display with Sempe' s illustration as a background to showcase my major pieces. It happens that Dalai Lama was there to give a speech in the neighborhood and I got to see him in distance! How exciting.
